This walk descends past Leura Cascades to the foot of Bridal Veil Falls, and then continues to Leura Forest and along the Federal Pass to the foot of the Scenic Railway. A great day out, this walk has everything: historic tracks, waterfalls, views and rainforest. Best of all, when you’re tired out at the end of the day, there’s a train ride back up the hill (last train leaves 4.45 pm, note that fees apply).
